hey i am buying my first guitar.... i noe that of course the SA260 is better but i just wanted to know if there is any differences other than the tremolo and is it worth the price differece...(400 euros and 250 euros) or do they both suck?
I would like to say SA260 is better, but when i bought mine i failed to notice the broken tremolo system, and well i reallly can not be arsed to get it fixed. So i have no idea, but the SA260 feels nicer in my opinion , i just cant bend any notes....
the bridge pickup is different, and the 260 has a flame maple top, which costs more than just a mahogany body.

edit: the 260 also has a push-pull pot for coil splitting

I've got a 160 and it looks very nice, it's got a quilt maple top and I've been playing it for 2.5 years now and I still like it a lot.
I don't have any experience with a 260

The trem on the 160 is crap in comparison. Mine has chipped at the knife-edge's, so it is pretty much unusable now.
